Wheelgun Wednesday!

Wheelgun Wednesday!

It's Wednesday somewhere, right? No? Well, it's 5 o'clock somewhere but we aren't talking about clocking out of work and heading home for some stress relief. But we are talking about stress relief and getting some shooting satisfaction through beloved wheelguns!

Yes, magazine-fed handguns have never been more popular than they are right now, but the appeal for the wheel has never died out! This is true for firearms as well as airguns. And guess what? We happend to make a healthy selection of both .177, 6mm, and paintball wheelguns. Take the first installment of this three-part tour with us.

Colt Peacemaker SAA

The Colt Peacemaker SAA is absolutely legendary in “old west” circles. Known by some as “the gun that won the west,” the original “six-shooter” has always been popular for its good looks as well as how well they shoot! We have been rocking these officially licensed Colt Peacemakers for several years now and it looks like there's nothing slowing down this 125-plus year old design!

Even better news is that you can pick up the .177 caliber version in either .177 caliber BB or .177 caliber pellet. The pellet version features a rifled barrel and special sized cartridges for pellets and the BB version has a smooth bore.

Smith & Wesson M29

Back in the 1970s and 80s there was a popular movie franchise that prominently featured Smith & Wesson's huge M29 .44 caliber revolver. Finally, we have produced a worthy BB and airsoft replica of this “hog leg.” This replica uses the same BB cartridges that the Colt Peacemakers use so if you own both, and we strongly recommend that you do, you can swap the shells around between them as needed.

The .177 caliber version is only available in the 8-inch format and the 6mm airsoft version can be attained with a 3-inch, 5-inch, or 8-inch barrel. Both are powered by 12-gram CO2 and will fit in leather made for the big N frame revolver.

Smith & Wesson M&P R8

The S&W M&P R8 looks like a million dollars with its modern features skillfully added to the “old” revolver design. The top of the barrel is drilled and tapped with 4 mounting points for optical accessories and the under barrel area is manufactured with Picatinny rail for a light or laser accessory. This is not a six-shooter. Nosireebob. This big M&P has an eight shot cylinder and uses a cartridge shell to load the BBs. If you want really cool, really modern, and really useful, you will want this Smith!
